The lighting parameters involved in a human factors engineering evaluation of control rooms for nuclear, fossil and industrial process plants are summarized and discussed. The results of actual, onsite surveys of control room lighting systems are reported. Of special significance is a deeper understanding of the problem of reflected glare from CRT displays which is described, as well as a quantitative method to measure the amount of reflected glare from various types of displays. Solutions to particular lighting problems are included.
